Our philosophy is to remove barriers to education to those whom for one reason or the other could not acquire it through the conventional university education system by expanding opportunities.
The philosophy is guided by the realization that existing conventional universities have challenges of capacity and ODL has been found to be viable alternative
The Centre was therefore established to meet the following specific objectives:
- Provide university education opportunities for those whom, for one reason or the other, cannot acquire such education through the regular university education system;
- Provide opportunities for those, who though, have the regular university education, may be interested in acquiring new knowledge and some specialized skills on other areas outside their initial areas of specialization;
- Organize occasional seminars and workshops for people in both private and public sectors to enable them keep abreast of developments in their various areas; and
- Provide opportunities for life-long education.
